Must-Have Cold Weather Apps for iOS and Android

Brrrr….there’s no doubt that winter is in full swing! It’s enough to make us feel like we want to snuggle up in a blanket, with no intention of going outside. But with work, school, and those New Year’s gym resolutions, that’s not always an option, is it? Besides, there are so many great winter sports to enjoy at this time of year. From keeping up with ski reports to helping if you’re stranded in severe weather, these free apps for Android and iOS have got you covered this winter!

Ski and Snow ReportOnTheSnow, the world's leading web site for ski reports and snow reports has created the Ski & Snow Reports app – bringing you current snow condition reports at more than 2,000 ski resorts around the globe. It also features first-hand ski reports from users, photos from the slopes, and trail maps of most ski areas. Available for Android and iOS Price: Free

Winter Wake-up – This app works like an ordinary alarm clock, but it wakes you up earlier if there has been freezing weather or snow the night before. Instead of waking up in a panic, you’ll have with plenty of time to clear your driveway, defrost your car, and still be on time for work/school. Available for Android and iOS. Price: Free

Winter Survival Kit – This app can be as important as a physical winter survival kit if you find yourself stuck or stranded in severe winter weather conditions.
